The Romans found the treasure. So proud were the Romans of their suppression of the First Jewish Revolt (66–70 C.E.) that for 50 years afterward they issued coins commemorating their victory, the Judea Devicta and Judea Capta coins. The obverse of the silver Judea Devicta coin depicts Emperor Vespasian (69–96 C.E.), who claimed victory over most of Judea in 68 C.E. The reverse shows a female personification of Judea defeated. She stands with her head bowed and her arms tied.
